    Yes, I do. The only time when I don't is when I need to squish it all in and change 'you' to 'u' etc

    I use correct grammar all the time. And spell things the proper way. I'm pretty sure it wastes more money, but I hardly use my phone anyway.

    In texts I don't capitalise but I respect grammar. If my text is slightly too long and running into two messages though, I do sometimes change "too" to 2 and "you" to "u" but they are the only ones!

    It's so much easier to write properly than try and work out what on earth "hy bbz cuaofk K ily xxxx" means :confused:

    I use the bonafide Queens english....in terms of spelling. (predictive)

    ....whether my heap of words strung together in a single sentance is ever grammatically correct....that's an entirely different kettle of fish.

    I txt a lot like I type on here. Words like 'because' get changed into 'cos' and things like that, and I don't capitalise 'i' but my phone does it automatically at the beginning of sentences. I don't ALWAYS put in the apostrophe (and it's one of the first things I delete if I go over a txt by a little bit). I sometimes change 'you' to 'u' etc, and I don't often use commas, but that's about it. I used to always use txtspeak, then I saw the light lol

    To my very best ability :yep:
    Try to use capitals and punctuation, but sometimes apostrophes get left out.
    My friends often comment on it saying it sounds hostile, but it's really not, it's just their inability to communicate in normal English.

    I always use proper spelling, punctuation & grammar, even if it means sending more than one message. I don't even change 'you' or 'u' or anything... if I did I think my friends would have coronaries, I'm the grammar nazi amongst us.

    i use predictive text, but i dont include any apostrophies in words so like don't becomes dont, can't is cant, i'm is im, etc etc. so i just use correct grammar to the extent that my predictive text does, and obviously my spelling is correct.
